Teaching Philosophy: I believe everyone can learn to love music. The more you know about music, the more you appreciate it. My experience in Education has taught me not only what to teach it, but how to teach music in different ways to meet the learning needs and goals of my students. I have learned that students' interests are also a key part of the learning process. My goal is to be both practical and personal in my teaching process, and to make music enjoyable for my students.
